Have a look at 12 minutes of Darksiders 3 pre-Alpha gameplay footage.

Watch on YouTube

The pre-alpha footage takes a look at Fury, who stars in Darksiders 3 as one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. She’s not too keen on the Seven Deadly Sins, and takes her hatred out on Sloth, which is a rather large, gross-looking crab-type monster.

The creature wields a rather large club and can extend its abdomen to dish out a walloping. Fury is adept with a whip though, and gives the arthropod a good thrashing.

See for yourself in the IGN First video above, and if you missed the screenshots posted yesterday, give those a look.

Darksiders 3 was announced earlier this week by THQ Nordic as in development at Gunfire Games, made up of former Vigil Games. Nordic acquired the IP along with Red Faction, MX, and others in a lot for around $4.9 million back in April 2013. Vigil nor the Darksiders franchise were picked up during the initial sale of THQ studios and IP during the initial sell-off in January of that year.

The following year in June, Nordic purchased the THQ name with plans to publish new titles under it. In August 2016, the firm officially changed its name to THQ Nordic.

Darksiders 3 is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is slated for release in 2018.
